Hey there! A week ago, the March 2015 issue of CREATE magazine, a FREE crafting magazine published by Scrapbook Generations was released! I had several projects in the magazine that I would love to share with you if you haven't already seen them. You can see the magazine in it's entirety HERE.
First up, a St Patty's day layout based on the most recent single page sketch. You can download the sketches for free! Allison and Debbie's sketches, as you might know, are amazing! So incredibly inspirational! You will see that I flipped the sketch horizontally in order to have the picture work to my advantage.
For the product section, we worked with chipboard and each of us used techniques of our choosing. I painted gesso onto the chipboard "M" on the right hand page of this pocket layout then pressed the impression of a stamp into the wet gesso. Once it was dry, I rubbed Distress Ink over the paint in area so you could see the impressioned image.
Here's a closer look at the end result;
I also got to work with the tag and card sketches this go around!
One of the Pebbles' collections from my design team term put to good use. I don't know what I'll do with a tag "as is" so I thought, as I created this, it would look great in a pocket scrapping page to fill one of the pockets for this Easter!
And finally, a birthday card created using the amazing "I AM..." collection from Simple Stories! I just LOVE this collection. Between the sketch and ease of matching things with this collection, this card came together SO quickly. Being as I'm not a regular card creator, that's big!
Be sure to check out all the other greatness to be found in this edition of the magazine! There is so much variety, it's amazing! And don't forget the Doodlebug team and their contributions!
